Do Illegal Immigrants Not Get It?

Lawmakers Are Not Only Confused Ones

immigrantsAn article in today’s Baltimore Sun really infuriated me! An admitted illegal immigrant (who refused to give her last name) is upset that her equally illegal daughter may not be able to get a license in Maryland after the new law is enacted.

She is concerned that the new two tiered licenses will make them appear different. I’m sorry, but if she is looking to be accepted and treated equally–do it legally. Certainly we welcome immigrants, but why must we embrace them when they refuse to follow our laws?  Why must we provide for their education?

It is not too much to ask that if you are going to benefit from this great nation; that you do it legally?

Marie-Therese, the illegal immigrant who refused to give her last name for fear of deportation explained, “What we want is to be like everyone else.” Well Marie-Therese, almost everyone else is here legally. If you want to be like everyone else, become a legal immigrant.

To the Maryland legislature–enough already.
